Everybody Can Dance! shows children of all cultures experiencing the joy of dance together. Children with disabilities tap a beat alongside others swinging to ballroom or bouncing to Bollywood. The fun, rhyming text will have any child asking for a repeat performance. This book can be a springboard for discussing how much we are all the same, how dance is fun for everyone, and how everybody can do it!
